chucked all undue inflations in prices for our principal staple*. fj' the independent treasury act had not been in f eJ ! lien, r, the) e would not have beensuih a large importation of specie, and the strict enforcement of that ait will keep the bulk of the specie imported, in the country. it is pretty well understood that the currency has a very /reat iniiuunce upon prices of every species of property, and in proportion to the depreciation in the ctyreiicy, prices become inflated, Had the banks been without uny such restrictions us the independent treasury imposes upon theni, and had they continuud to bold tho government depositee, there would doubtless hare been an expansion on the part of these institutions cipial to any heretofore experienced. Prices for goods^ wares and merchant!lee would have become very much lull ated, aud the spinners of Europe would have been able to manufacture fabries for our markets, amidst all tho restrictions imposed at home by a tight money market, and hi^ii prices for breadstuff*, and we should have received P'tyineut for exports, In cotton, woollen and other manufactures, instead of receiving it in specie. Nothing hut the great improvement In the value of our currency, aud its influence upon prices, has prevented a largo importation of foreign manufactures. So long as the Independent treasury net is rigidly and^religiously enforced, so long will our importations continue moderate, while it will aid and increase our exports. By bringing prices in our homo murkets down to a specie level, we stand in u inoro favorable position as sellers, while we become buyers only in proportion to the ability of other nations in underselling our own manufacturers of similar articles, if ur own markets. Heretofore we hate purchased at paper prices and sold at specie prices. Mercltaudise manufactured in Europe, under a currency reduced nearly to a specie standard, could be sold in our markets, regulated t>y a depreciated paper curroucy, at enormous proflts ; and the result was that our markets were frequently overloaded with the manufactures of Europe. The independent treasury does away with all this, and it is therefore platuly to be Seen that the present financial policy of the government acts more powerfully as a protection to our domestic manufactures, than all the tariffs wo ever had. The manufacturers of Great Britain understand perfectly well the operation and effect of the independent t rcasury uot, and they have abandoned all idea of reali'/.ing. so long as that act continues in force, such prices for their fabrics as they have heretofore received. Our own manufacturers never were in a more prosperous condition ; tlioy are thriving better under a specie currency and a low tariif, than they ever did under an expanded paper currency and achigh tariif. Nearly a hundred thousand bales of cotton will bo consumed In the United States in 1817, over and above the consumption of any previous year, and fair proilts are realized upon every kind of manufactured goods. The annexe 1 table exhibits the quotations for stocks in this market, for each day of the past week, and at the close of the week previous.

The comparative market value of the bends and stock of the Reading Railroad Company, is a matter of considerable comment. The bonds of the company are selling at twenty-eight and thirty per cent below par. while its stock only ranges about twenty per cent below par, showing a greater depreciation in tho bonds than in the stock. Compared with other companies, the stock Is either too high or the bonds too low. The bonds of the Norwich and Worcester Company are only ten per cent below par, while its stock is fifty per cent below par. llarlem Bonds are only five per cent below par while its stock is fifty per cent below par. Baltimore and Ohio Railroad ,bonds at par, while its stock is fifty-three per cent below par. Thn vhiolt Viavu rn/?a?fl? r*e\! %?? relative to the sain of Heading Railroad Company bonds, to liquidate its floating debt, have fallen through, in consequence of which the bonds payable in 1850, have fallen back to seventy-two per cent, a decline of three per cent. The probability, at ono time, of the arrangement proposed being perfected, had a favorable influj once upon the market value of the stock, but the advance has boon lost since tho suspension of negotiations and the probable failure of tho contemplated plan for tbe removal of the flouting debt. The receipts of the Norwich and Worcester Railroad Company, for the month of April, 1840 and 1847, woro as annexed :? Norwich and Worcester Railroad. Receipts in April, 1848, *19.689 22 Receipts in April. 1847 21,130 51 Increase in April, 1847; $1,441 29 The fare to Boston, up to the 1st of May. was flve'dollars. Since that time it has been four, a reduction of twenty per cent. What effect this will have upon the receipts, is as yet undecided or unknown. The charges are now tbe same on all the routes to and from Boston. There is very little prospect of an improvement in the financial affairs of this company, with such a limited increase in the receipts as exhibited in the above statement. Tbe company is incumbered with a debt beyond its ability to bear, its losses in steamboats, within the past year?the loss of tbe Atlantic, and depreciation of others?will swallow up the surplus earnings of the next five years, if there ehoul*. chance to be any. The actual travel this season has been considerably lots than last?higher fare* having kept up the, receipts?and it ie not only compelled to run in competition wiM' onu of the beet appointed route* to boston?the Stonington?but with other new one* calculated to diminish the revenue, and materially interfere with its prospects. There Is not a railroad and steamboat route between thin city and Boston, depending upon its share of the through business between the two cities, for dividends, that will ever realizo one. In the course of another year, two new routes will be opened?one this season, via Kail Iliver. and one next, via the New yYork and New Haven Railroad? and the travel will become so divided and so distributed, that it will give very little business to each, and that little will not pay, amidst the competition which must inevitably exist between the various lines.

Whereas, sundry article* have appeared in the papers, inrnlviug this committee >n the atl'airs of Mr. be Kay ami llir M eedoiuan, i( is, UltNfoN, Resolved, 'I liac llie following expl uintion be publislieil for lie satisfaction of our contributors and tbe public. In one ol 111? articles allulled to, publislieil in the Sun, April !8th, Mr. De Kay said : " The New York committee, after CoatlHadnf llie niiplicatiou by me, thanking me for a tender if my services to carry out any shiii they might get, <M my arrival here declined receiving the ship from the Secretary of he Navy, who, by the way, never tendered and never could tender her to them, and for reasons of their own, which are yet unexplained, have steadily set themsrlves in opposition to ier( as 1 ain informed on reliable authority. 'I wo chaises are here made? First, " That the committee recommended the application to (Jointress for the use of the Macedonian," and when the teasel was granted declined to receiveand make use of her; and herondly, That they have set themselves in opposition to her I o reasons ol'tlieir own, which are yet unexplained. A sufficient refutation of these charges will be found in two resolutions passed by the committee, which seem to bare esraped Mr lie Kay's recollection. On the 16th of February a note was addressed by Mr. I)e Kay to Ueorge Barclay, tup, respectfully submitting the propriety of applying to government for the use of* the Macedonian, now Iylog idle, and not probably Wanted for immediate service, and offering his services to command her on tbe outward and homeward voyage. This letter was laid before the committee on the 17th of February, whereupon, after discussion, it was unanimously] llesolvrd. That the thanks of this committee he presented to Commodore De Lay for his olfer, and that he he informed thut we do not drcm it expedient to make the applieatiou he recommends to the government. The committee, although disapproving of the application ( Congress, did nothing to interfere witli it, and after the act was passed, and the Macedonian was again tendered to them "or the conveyance of provisions, the offer was courteously dedined, with an express statement of their objections; the . (lowing extract from their iniuules of llie lOlli having hern .lublishta in the papers of the 11 th of March:? AID TO IRKLAND. N Committee, Prune Buildings, ii Wall st. 1 New York, March 10, 1847. $ The standing committee having been informed that the United States ship Macedonian has been placed at the disposal rf the Secretary of the Navv for tbe purpose of conveying pronsions tothe destitute of Ireland, baring considered tbe propriety of sending by Iter contributions plneed in their hands. llut appropriations not having been made by Government for he expenses of tbe voyage of that ship. It is Kes lved, That ill view thereof, and of the responsibility old delay which may attend shipments DT tint vessel, the nilnmittre deem it inrx|iedient to forward by her the contributions under their control, and direct that the sub-corn mittrcs on provisions continue to invest the funds and send them forward by small vessels as rapidly as possible. Ordered that this resolution lie published. M. VAN 8CHAICK. Chairman Standing Committee. The chief reason which governed the committee, and one .1 ,?i i.. .i r ic .i- . . .. - - T...? v.t. ... .urn. ... linn mimcit-iitWin mill ine Secretary of the Navy had made 110 appropriation for the ex* [tenses of the voyage, which mini, therefore, he defrayed either by the British Government or by private! subscription tmoug our own citizens. The first alternative was rejected at nice. The idea of asking or receiving from the British Government, under any circuinstances, the expenses of the Unilril States frigate Macedonian, was one little likely to find lavnr with Americans; and in the present case it was unhesitatingly discarded. OSIMirssas that it would lie derogatory to our rational character, as blending an act of national generosity oward the people of Great Britain with a demand upon their Treasury. The second alternative was also rejected, on the [round that all moneys appropriated for the expenses nf| the Macedonian would be so much deducted from the amount to '?? expended in food, as the British government had offered to pay me freight of provisions given by tuivate individuals and sunt by merchant ve._-l?; and that offer could be accepted without impropriety. The responsibility and delay which might attend shipments by the Macedonian, for whose outfit and vipeuacs no funds were provided, were other considerations that occurred to the rommitsee and were referred to in their resolutions and ujmiii these views frankly and courteously explained to Mr. DiKsv, and fully stated to the public, their action haa been based.

Preparations for Kortifyin? the City. 4(c. Ac. A*. Drapclcli No. I, New Orleans papers, received at Philadelphia last evening. At six o'clock, contain further interesting particulars of the battle, but nothing later. The enemy's loss In killed and wounded was about equal to ours. Thirty beautiful brass cannon, and large quantities of ammunition,were taken. Some Mexican officers taken, attribute their defeat to the cowardice or corruption of Santa Anna. They ad mit he had eight thousand men in the lines, and six thousand outside the entrenchments. The Mexican infantry, who fought so well at Buena Vista, and all the regulars uud^artillerists. were present Several officers released by (ion. Scott, after the eapitu lution of Vera Cruz, without parole, on account of their gallantry, were found among the killed and wounded The advices from the city of Mexico, state that Gomez Farias has been removed from power, a bill having passed Congress by 38 to 3, in favor of suppressing the Vice Presidency of the Republic. Previous to Santa Anna's leaving the capital, on the day of Iiis departure, Pedro Amnya was chosen substitute, receiving 60 votes to Almonte's li. lie took oath and entered on the duties as substitute, on the 2nd ot April On the 3d, he held a consultation with various military officers and distinguished Individuals, on the propriety of fortifying the capital. Opinions were gene- * rally expressed that the works should be commenced immediately, and government hnd charged the principal engineer to prepare, in two days, plans of fortifications. The inaugural of Amaya, and address of Santa Anna to his constituents and the < engross, are given in the firayunr, the first disclosing more fully his views of action in regard to the war ; and the second, one of Santa Anna's ablest productions, like all bis speeches and public addresses, breathes fierce and determined hostility towards this country, and excludes all thought of peace. A guerilla war, and attacks on our posts, are advocated by tliu leuding members of the Mexican Congress. The squadron under Commodore Perry has returned from its expedition to Tuspan. We have Draxos dates of the 2tth, from General Taylor's army. Resolutions of thanks to General Scott have been introduced in the Louisiana Senate.

In the engagement four men were killed, and fourteen were wounded on our side, among whom were four officers, Tls : Capt.
